Zendaya Coleman is proving to be the future of music and fashion, with a beauty and talent so mesmerizing, she's often compared to the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna. The quadruple-threat, singer, dancer, actress, and model was the toast of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014, keeping the cameras flashing and all eyes on what the former disney starlet would wear next. Here on Glam Damnit, we've got some of Zendaya's best looks of the year so far.
With a beauty like Zendaya, she could wear anything, but this style star goes above and beyond, making fun and inspiring decisions with print, patterns, and accessories, as well as developing a sophisticated taste for fashion, going from classy casual and sexy elegant to youthful urban, and avant-garde chic.
New York City hummed with palpable electricity as legions of fashion fiends swarmed the tents at Lincoln Center to behold the collections built on blood, sweat and glitter. This was New York Fashion Week.
The intrigue of Alexander Wang’s collection enticed fashionistas to schlep down to Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, far from the chaos of Manhattan. Complete with a spinning runway, Wang dazzled with his dramatic flair.
Models were unrecognizable with icy stares, bleached brows and slick-straight wigs, which reflected the androgynous overtones of the show. They marched down the runway in utilitarian dresses with rows of pockets for things you never knew you needed. Wang played with gender bending in menswear-inspired frocks. Billowing slacks hid under oversized coats with massive lapels that veiled any trace of womanly curves.
Keeping with the Kardashian empire theme of "sex sells", 18 year-old Kendall Jenner bestowed upon the world her goodies last night, but don't worry it was all in the name of high fashion.
Many insiders have said that Kendall was completely unrecognizable backstage even the press and photographers ignored her, because her hair and makeup covered up her identity so well.
This also isn't the first time Kendall has shown her chest. In November she posted up a picture on her Instagram of her wearing a see through black sweater with no bra.
Walking in a Marc Jacobs show is a very big deal to many models in the industry and in true Kardashian/Jenner fashion, Kendall made sure no one will ever forget about her runway debut!
As Fashion Week in New York City hits the final stretch, a select few of privileged guests braved the cold on Monday evening to gather at Tao Downtown in Downtown Manhattan, where they were invited by Television star and "Dancing with the Stars" veteran, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Robert Kheit to preview Cantamessa Men, a high-end collection of men's jewelry. It was a night to remember with a slew of familiar faces including fellow DWTS alumn, Tony Dovolani, broadway rock star, Constantine, as well as Disney starlet and budding fashionista Zendaya.

We're a little more than halfway through New York Fashion Week, but we can't relax just yet! The after parties, events, and shows are getting even better, so rally the troops and attend the city's chicest to-do's. From networking opportunities to a sneak peak at leather trousers, we've got tabs on the hottest places to be (besides the runway) for closing out NYFW.
Tuesday, February 11
There are only a handful of hours left to nab tickets for this one-of-a-kind after party at Marquee NYC. The French-inspired fashion event will begin at 8 pm with designer Sophie Reyes' couture Spring 2014 and ready-to-wear Fall/Winter 2014-15 runway show, featuring live musical performances. Later, the night will get loud with DJ Alex Ortega to celebrate the launch of French Tuesdays.
Already equipped with a rooftop restaurant called Haven, that serves up french cuisine, The Sanctuary Hotel will soon open Tender, a new restaurant and lounge designed by Josh Held and owned by Hank Freid and Brandon Freid, this March.
On Friday, February 7th, we got a sneak peak of the new space while sipping Voga cocktails and mingling with stars at the Charlotte Ronson's NYFW after party.
Once we walked through the entranceway in back of the front bar, we immediately found ourselves in the spacious restaurant that featured 2 seperate bars and plenty of seating. It made for the perfect setting for a fashion week after party! And whats an after party without some celebs? Natalia Kills, Jesse Metcalfe, Joe Jonas, Siva Kaneswaran from The Wanted and Mariska Hargitay all joined the party that night!
It might be cold outside, but a little wind and snow won't stop New York Fashion Week !. It's a lot like Christmas, except most of the gifts are designer, you receive way more than you give, and instead of singing along to cheesy holiday tunes, there's a sexy sampling of music guaranteed to make you feel like all the world's a stage and we're just here to watch you walk it up and down. So to help get you in the mood for NYFW, here's a little list of tracks to match the latest looks we'll see.
Gramatik - 'Torture' featuring Eric Krasno
Traditionally the hub of Fashion Week activities, Lincoln Center offers ample opportunity to eat, drink, and be merry.
Chef John DeLucie’s traditionalist, old-school lavish style comes full tilt at his grand ballroom of a restaurant, designed by decorator Meg Sharpe (formerly of Ralph Lauren). Indulge in almost theatrically fine dining with Hudson Valley Fois Gras, Caviar Service, and decadent entrees like grilled Maine Lobster, Rack of Lamb plated over delicate chantrelles, and Steak served with enormous marrow bones. For simpler fare, try the delicious hand-made pastas, like the Rabbit Risotto, served with fall squash, pea greens, garlic butter, rabbit jus, or the Tagliatelle Carbonara with wild mushrooms, smoked bacon, farm egg, cream, parmesan.
